Previously on Boredork Dumpdire: Knox flips Eli and Nucky rumbles it. Just as they’re about to go to the big meet where Agent Knox will be waiting to pull off the sting Nucky pulls Eli aside, sticks a gun to his head and tells him he knows that he’s the skunk, the rat, the badger who’s been squealing to the Feds. Young Will intervenes with some WTF? and Eli escapes with his life.

This development of course means that they miss the big organised crime takedown that Knox was so keen on and is he happy with that? Do you fink he gonna have dat? No, no he’s not and no he won’t. His dissatisfaction is deep enough for him to express it in person in the Thompson household, gloating to Eli how young Will will get bummed to death in prison by a series of men resembling the Bo Selecta Elton John character. This is a bit much for Eli who attacks the chump and, after a sensational fight scene that calls to mind Dan Dority’s tussle with Captain Cuntface on Deadwood, strangles him to shit deading him like he was nothing. Christ.

Knox gloats to Eli how young Will will get bummed to death in prison by a series of men who resemble the Bo Selecta Elton John character.

That’s before we even get to Jim Davidson’s pal Chalky. He’s pissed at Nucky but the two organise Doctor Narcisse‘s downfall with military precision. Nucky arranges a sitdown between the two Libyans at the Onyx and has expert marksman Richard Harrow on hand to kill Narcisse (in exchange for the location of Jimmy Darmody’s body to fuck Gillian at her trial). Unfortunately, Richard chooses this moment to have an attack of the shakes and he squeezes the trigger just as Chalky’s daughter Maybelle walks into his line of fire. “Raas claat!” screams Chalky, then “Mi gone!” as he scarpers out just as police arrive. Richard takes one to the guts before slipping out the back and making his way to the beach. Narcisse gets nicked. It’s pretty bleak.

“Raas claat!” screams Chalky, then “Mi gone!” as he scarpers out just as police arrive.

But wait, Richard made it out! Hurray! Look, he approaches his sister on the porch of her home. Look there are the Sagorskys! And young Tommy! Richard’s fatal gunshot wound cleared up pretty quickly. Even his face has grown back. Oh wait. Stupid dream sequence – he’s dead like a cunt beneath the pier. He’s dead, Chalky’s minus a daughter, Eli’s in hiding, Torrio‘s handed control over to Al Capone and Narcisse is grassing on Marcus Garvey. Still at least little Tommy got out from under psycho killer Mi-Ma. God knows how that little fuck would end up after being dragged up by her.

The verdict: Poxy Knoxy

Marks out of 10: 7.5
